I did my research about vertical sleeve surgery before I saw Dr K. In fact I went to another surgery center to see their program. I felt they were too big to give me the time & attention I required. I dislike doctors , medicine & was terrified to even consider surgery. Dr K and his staff are so kind and knowledgeable that I was able to qwell my fears and had surgery. The staff at the surgery center were fabulous. I am know recovering at home, pretty sore but not terrribly so.

I have been a patient of Dr Krishnaraj for 10 years. He performed Lapband surgery on me, when I was 420 pounds. Dr Krish is quiet and easy to work with and the visit to him is all about you. The staff in the office is friendly and efficient, be it calling you to remind you of an appointment, or scheduling a visit. For 10 years I have felt comfortable during a visit and relied upon Dr Krish to remove my gall bladder and perform hernia surgery last year. Do not hesitate seeking his expertise.

Dr. Krishnaraj and his Staff have the best customer service and make sure they always put your health first and foremost before everything else. Dr. Krishnaraj has a great bedside manor and helps you achieve your goals. I was once extremely overweight, however; with his and his staffs help I am well on my way to being healthy again.

I would definately refer friends, family or anyone that is considering any type of bariatric surgery here. The staff are great. Always friendly and try to help in any way they can. My wait time is usually less 2 minutes. Normally I don't even sit down. The office is very clean. And the Doctor and staff answer any and all questions you have. I have never felt rushed. Over all... the BEST!!
